Show brings back memories

Mark Kleinschmidt, Kenwyn

Satin to Sequins, the high-energy production reflecting the rich culture and traditions of the Cape Malay people and which is running at the Baxter Theatre, is a warm masala of music, comedy and colour.

The carnival of the Tweede Nuwejaar celebrations of the Cape Malays, specifically the Woodstock Darlings, of yesteryear is brought alive by producer Oddball Productions, directed by veteran award-winning performer/producer Alistair Izobell.

The nostalgic trip down memory lane in Woodstock and District Six is filled with the spirit and humour of the indigenous people, disenfranchised by the apartheid government of the day.

Capetonians must not miss this homegrown production.
